Joe Biden's poll numbers are plummeting at exactly the wrong time | Analysis by Chris Cillizza

It's been a very rough last two months for President Joe Biden, plagued by a disastrous end to the war in Afghanistan and the Delta variant of the coronavirus rampaging through the unvaccinated.

Those twin developments have badly eroded Americans' view of the President, according to new Gallup numbers released this week. Biden's job approval now sits at just 43% while a majority -- 53% -- disapprove of how he has handled his duties.It's been a rapid descent for Biden. As late as June, 56% approved of how he was doing while only 40% disapproved. The decline began in July (50% approve/46% disapprove) and in August roughly the same number approved (49%) as disapproved (48%). The decline in Biden's numbers is almost entirely attributable to independents souring on him. In June, 55% of those not affiliated with either party approved of how Biden was handling the presidency. Today that number sits at just 37%. As Gallup's Megan Brenen notes:"Two-thirds of Biden's slide among independents since he took office has occurred in the past three months." (Partisans have been remarkably consistent; Roughly 9 in 10 Democrats approved of Biden's presidency while single-digit percentages of Republicans feel the same.)Read MoreBiden's struggles of late put him in company he would prefer not to keep: Only Donald Trump -- at 37% -- among recent presidents had a lower approval rating at this point of their presidency. Both Barack Obama (52%) and George W. Bush (51%) had the approval of a majority of the country in September of their first year in the White House. .duval-3{width:100%;position: relative; border: 1px solid #979797; border-left: none; border-right: none;padding: 20px 0; box-sizing: border-box; -webkit-box-sizing: border-box; -moz-box-sizing: border-box; margin: 0 0 20px 0; max-width: 660px;} .duval-3 a{color: #1a1a1a; text-decoration: none;font-size: 0;} .duval-3 a:hover { color: #d9d9d9; text-decoration: underline; -moz-text-decoration-color: #d9d9d9; text-decoration-color: #d9d9d9; } .duval-3>a>*{vertical-align: top; display: inline-block;} .duval-3>a>div{display: inline-block; font-size:1.0666667rem;width: 80%; padding-top: 0px; padding-left: 2%;} .duval-3>a>img{width: 18%; height: auto;} @media screen and (max-width:640px){ .duval-3>a>*{display:block; margin: auto;} .duval-3>a>div{width: 100%;} .duval-3>a>img{width: 50%;} } THE POINT -- NOW ON YOUTUBE!

Baby and his swim lesson instructor's friendship goes viral

A sweet moment from their swim lesson is going viral on TikTok.

Are you trying to be the new FOX, CNN Why don’t you publish daily stories about how his poll numbers dropped because of a mess of a withdrawal from Afghanistan that was engineered by Trump and an ensuing BS narrative that was manipulated by Fox News, rather than piling on with more of this crap? I didn’t know there was a ‘right time’ to suck?

He’s not running again he could careless Dems need to worry about finding someone for next election it won’t be Joe The question is how real the polls are and how hard the cult republicans trying to discredit Biden. It's all a plan anyway. The plan is for him to pass and for her to become president...🧐

debra_anzelone CNN is the new Fox News. 🤣🤣🤣🤣majority of America see what he has done to make America less safe and more and more ruin the county. Cut that check… quietly kept secret Vice President almost silent 🤣🤣 couldn’t happen to finer man 🤣🤣

Analysis: Why it's getting even harder for Biden to pass his legacy-defining agenda'Democrats were already attempting the near impossible with Joe Biden's presidential agenda in peril. But a string of recent setbacks is making it even more crucial -- and difficult -- to pass his legacy-defining agenda.' Analysis by StCollinson StCollinson Legacy defying agenda You people are sick!!🖕🏻 StCollinson THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION HAS PISSED OFF THE REAL AMERICANS. BIDEN IS A MURDERER, THE GOVERNMENT HAS GOTTEN TO CORRUPT. BIDEN IS TRYING TO DO WHAT OBAMA DID STRONG ARM AMERICANS. BUT IT ISN'T GOING TO FLY THIS TIME. AMERICANS ARE GOING TO WIN StCollinson It's only about them not wanting him to look good which hurts the country

He is just being used as a punch bag & scapegoat as half the issues he is dealing with were Inherited or are other people’s inability to do their jobs. He has done well considering the idiotic behaviour of most if not all of the republican party & some Dems. We've seen who you are ChrisCillizza. Your Biden rants don't even register anymore.

So what. We don't care what 'poll' shows. Your articles are always slanted toward the most negative aspect of everything so you can get people to click in. Why are you posting a picture where he appears to be sleeping? Repubs run w this stuff! Cnn is just another talk show these days. Of course because Republicans will always lie about Biden and some Dems will hate on him because they haven’t got EVERYTHING THEY’VE ASKED FOR IN 6 MONTHS. Now the negativity spreads.

This is from an Iowa poll…..Iowa is a Trump state….more disinformation from media. President Biden is doing an amazing job!!! Don't worry about the stupid stuff! CNN not much better that Fox when push comes to shove :( That boy will never see the White House after his term finishes. 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾

Donald Trump Shades Joe Biden After Piping Drive On Golf CourseDonald Trump took shots at Joe Biden after smashing a drive on a tee box in front of fellow golfers. That’s all he can do is golf and talk crap And water is wet. As much as he played the last 4 years he should be on the Tour

Polls are bs The poll numbers taken for Biden are full of crap. Who in the hell are they polling ? Are they polling Republicans only, what a load !! 47% is not that low. Stop with the negativity for ratings. His tax hike proposal (which will hurt any working class indivdual who decided to invest, since 401Ks keep getting denied or frozen) esp. after his large spending, does not help his case at all.

HE MESSED UP LETTING ALL THESE INVADERS IN....ALL OF THEM............... Yes HandsoffEthiopia you won’t get my vote 🗳 again that’s for sure!!
